-- immigration reform, and for those of us that followed that, barack obama voted for poison-pill amendments the coalition did not support, that john mccain/kennedy did not support, yet when it came to the election, john mccain did horrible with latino voters and felt abandoned by the group he felt he had been fighting for, and probably one of the most negative eds their opinion 2008 was a spanish language and then try to link john mccain to the use of rush limbaugh, not even fairly taken -- taking the views of rush limbaugh into context, and he hates the john mccain, but he abandoned immigration reform after the election, and frankly, just talking about the principles, how could you blame him? >> i would say his party abandoned him. we saw in the primaries leading up to the nomination, you had rudy guiliani trying to outdo each other in terms of extreme rhetoric that was anti-locking all. it was a weight that he could not overcome as he was headed into the nomination and he realized he could not fulfil the positions he had taken early on and had no choice. i think this is a reflection of th

think we are going to see a dramatically different rock obama -- barack obama if he wins, and specifically with regard to campaign finance reform. now he has said, and i got to play by the rules, because i cannot lose, but when i get in, i am going to fix this campaign finance issue, so what are your thoughts? >> i think my answer is the same, and that is that i do not know. now i do not think anyone knows. it is the obvious race between obama and romney, but it is the issue of campaigning, and we do not know who is going to end up in the white house if he wins reelection. there are differences between the two. obama campaigned as a leader, but he governs as a timid leader. you cannot be a transformational leader and not ruffle many feathers, and he understands that, and we have wasted a lot of pressures term, and if we go back to the original stimulus bill, if it had been better crafted, better targeted, larger, we would have perhaps not had ongoing erosion in terms of jobs that we have seen, so time matters comi-con when it comes to us it -- time matters when it comes t
michelle obama. chris matthews? >> certainly made the connection, don't you think? i mean, so much of tonight was interactive. it was between her and that audience in the room. i thought the camera work was so important watching this on television. you saw on the faces of men and women, black and white, all different backgrounds, the connection. she was with people. the emotional connection, telling the story of her love affair with her husband. with her life of getting ahead. but there was one big difference than four years ago which just came through in the earlier speeches tonight. it was hope and change, yes, hope and change but not hope and change imaginally overnight. but hope through work and patience and time and effort and then change. i think it was a much more mature look at their own lives as they got there. i'll tell you, i assume most americans watching tonight who have been lucky in this country, have gotten close to the american dream, have done it the way they did it. with student loans. with good parents who made them study. of being parents who make their kids st

. i apologize now let me get it right. >> charlie:i read a usa interview with president obama and he talked about the fact he thinks the country is not caught up in the eye lee logical divide but caught up in the idea why things don't work, which is dysfunction in washington. there are partisan feelings about democrats and republicans but it's not an ideological thing. is that true? >> in statistics 2 to 1 more americans identify themselves as conservative. >> charlie:i'm say ideological in terms of extreme of either party. >> they don't want that. this election is not going to be decided by the extremity bull the people dead center who believe in a right of center economic approach and a leave us alone on social issues. so they're closer to barack obama on sewingal closer to mitt romney on economic issues so they're torn. >> charlie:bait way there's a difference between independent and affiliated. >> check democratic and choose both. unaffiliated says i don't care. ly follow this on election day and that's t the problem is neither candidate is speak to go them in a way they want to

that when it comes to his character and his convictions and his heart, barack obama is still the same man i fell in love with all those years ago. he is the same man who started his career by turning down high-paying jobs and instead of working and struggling -- in struggling neighborhoods where steel plant shutdown, fighting to rebuild communities and get folks back to work. because for barack, success is not about how much money you make. it is about the different to make in people's lives. -- the diffrence you make in people's lives. he is the same man when our girls were first born with anxiously checked their cribs every few minutes to ensure they were still breathing, proudly showing them off to everyone we knew. you see, that is the man who sit down with me and our girls for dinner nearly every night, patiently answering questions about issues in the news, strategizing about middle school french ships -- friendships. that is the man i see in this quiet moments late at night, hunched over his desk, poring over the letters people have sent him. the latter are the father struggling to p
